Barcelona chasing El Clasico win record

Barcelona have the chance to create club history with a win in Saturday's El Clasico clash against Real Madrid at the Saniago Bernanbeu.

La Blaugrana's 3-0 win in the Spanish capital in the midweek Copa del Rey semi finals, was their 95th El Clasico victory, drawing level with their great rivals in number of wins – the first time they have been at level pegging for 87 years.

Barcelona have worked hard to close the gap over the past two decades, with just 13 wins from 74 El Clasicos played in Madrid fixtures prior to 2003, but since 2004, they have won 12 of 24 away games at the home of the European champions. 

A win in this weekend's meeting would see Barcelona move 12 points ahead of Santiago Solari's side at the top of the table. However a home win would see Real Madrid move ahead of second place Atletico Madrid – for a least 24 hours – and six points behind Ernesto Valverde's side, possibly breathing new life into the title race.
